American Mary Release Party

To celebrate the release of Alexandra Naughton's new novel.

Alexandra Naughton is known for uncomfortably honest, often diaristic poetry about contemporary life that probes into concepts like the performance of self and the complicated boundary between wanting to be loved and wanting to be used. Her new novel is American Mary, a lyrical, melancholic narrative about desire. To celebrate the release of the book, which was published last month by Civil Coping Mechanisms, Naughton is putting together a public living room soiree in the residence of Oakland poet Cassandra Dallett (2465 26th Ave., Oakland) on April 16. The party, which starts at 5 p.m., will feature readings from Naughton, Dallett, and fellow poets Paul Corman-Roberts, Joshua Kent Fowler, Zack Haber, and Kate Robinson, among others. Naughton also promises music, food, dancing, and of course, copies of her new book.
